A sharp knife is a safe knife

A dull blade is harder to control and risks slipping, increasing the chances of injuring your fingers.

A good honing steel will help you realign your knife’s edge to make cooking safer, faster and more enjoyable.

Thanks to the hard steel used in making KOTAI knives, they only require honing every week or so, depending on use.

Features

#70 carbon steel
Just like how it takes a diamond to cut a diamond, it takes a very hard steel to hone a steel blade.
At HRC 65, the KOTAI honing steel can fix even the hardest steel alloys in just a few strokes.
Honing vs. Sharpening
Honing realigns the blade edge in just a few strokes, while sharpening removes the dull edge to create a new, sharp one.
Use the honing steel for weekly maintenance; use the whetstone to restore the blade's edge when sharpening becomes necessary.
Get the angle right
To help you hone your blade at the correct angle, the finger guard features a built-in 15˚ guide.

Best honing Steel I've used

This is a wonderful honing Steel. I picked it up to use in between uses of my whetstone to keep the edge on my blades. It does an outstanding job and keeps a razor-sharp knife. The handle has a very nice weight to it so it's simple to hold the knife at the correct angle while sharpening it.

Un excellent produit pour ce prix

La poignée est très agréable, surtout pour les grandes mains comme les miennes. Il semble assez durable et facile à nettoyer. L'acier est solide et assez long pour supporter de gros couteaux et hachoirs. Il fonctionne à merveille. Il a rendu tous mes couteaux émoussés très, très tranchants. Je n'aurai pas à aiguiser mes couteaux très souvent car cet acier de qualité maintiendra la lame beaucoup plus longtemps entre les aiguisages. Il est assez dur et lisse pour plusieurs de mes couteaux japonais de milieu de gamme. Il a rendu mon couteau de chef KOTAI, suffisamment tranchant pour couper de fines lamelles d'ail. Je suis très heureux de cet achat.
